ΣΤΙΧΟΙ:
Ωπα
Ωπα, ωπα

Έκαψα το χθες, νύχτες μου παλιές,
θρύψαλα οι αναμνήσεις έγιναν κι αυτές
Μνήμες και φωνές άδικες ευχές
κι άφησα σε μια γωνία ανοιχτές πληγές

Έκαψα το χθες νύχτες μου παλιές
όνειρα και εφιάλτες ρίχνω στις φωτιές
Δάκρυα καυτά ψέμματα πολλά
μοιάζουν σα βουβή ταινία που δεν βλέπω πια

Ωπα

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Έκαψα το χθες, νύχτες μου παλιές,
κι από το μηδέν αρχίζω όσο κι αν δε θες
Δάκρυα καυτά ψέμματα πολλά
πλήρωσα όσο χρωστούσα και τα δανεικά

Ωπα!

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Ωπα!

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Βάζω μια φωτιά
σ’όλα τα παλιά
όλα θα τ’αλλάξω
και θα το φωνάξω
περασμένα ξεχασμένα κι όλα απ’την αρχή ξανά

Ωπα!

Lyrics translation in English



I burnt the past, my previous nights
Shattered memories as well
Sorrows and voices, unfair wishes
And I left all open wounds aside

I burnt the past, my previous nights
Dreams and nightmares cast in the fire
Burning tears, lots of lies
All seem like a silent movie I no longer watch


OPA!
I set on fire
Everything that’s old
I will change everything – OPA!
And I’ll shout it out loud – OPA!
Let bygones be bygones, let’s start all over again – OPA!


I burnt the past, my previous nights
And I start from scratch, even if you don’t want it
Burning tears, lots of lies
I paid all my dues


OPA!
I set on fire
Everything that’s old
I will change everything – OPA!
And I’ll shout it out loud – OPA!
Let bygones be bygones, let’s start all over again – OPA!

Biography

An unknown force in the music industry is definitely not the way to describe Alex Christensen. DJ, producer, composer, BMI AND ECHO award winner along with other diverse award nominations are some of the titles Mr. Christensen holds under his belt.


Alex Christensen

With his Groundbreaking idea for the song Das Boot in 1991 in a Techno version, Alex revolutionized the techno music scene by making techno, chart compatible. Das Boot became number 1 on the charts in more than 22 countries worldwide and was number 1 on the German charts for 13 weeks (at that time holding the record for the 2nd longest number 1 chart position). With U96 Alex sold more than 15 million records.

Alex was also featured alongside Christina Appelgate and James Marshall in the film Cyberman. Adding acting to his many diversified talents. Alex has disc jockeyed alongwith DJ icons including Sven Väth, Westbam, and Moby worldwide.As a producer, from the 1990’s to now he has produced for artists including Right Said Fred, Marky Mark, Jose Carreras, Paul Anka, Tom Jones, Michael Bolton, N’Sync, U96, ATC, Sarah Brightman, Natasha Thomas, Rollergirl, Yvonne Catterfeld, Fady Maalouf and Udo Lindenberg.

With the band BROSIS (winners of the German Series Popstars) Alex served on the shows jury and produced a single for the band that sold 800,000 units in only 2 days time. Adding to Alex’s impressive credits, his single for ATC Around the World was Germany’s most heavily rotated radio single, since he was beaten by Kylie Minogue.

Following Alex’s fifth number one single with Du hast den schönsten Arsch der Welt and album Euphorie he has stayed true to his signature style, mixing dance music and German text. Alex C. featuring” Yass” has proven to be a hit in Germany and Europe wide.

With the success of his production work on two of Paul Anka’s albums, including duets with Michael Bublé and Sammy Davis Junior , Rock Swings was nominated for a Grammy,and achieved double platinum status. For Michael Bolton (two time Grammy winner, four time nominee for best pop/vocal male, with sales over 52 million units worldwide, and six time American music award winner) he produced Bolton Swings Sinatra.

After this success Alex continues to evolve in the swing and dance genres seeking theright person to interpret his musical vision. In Oscar he has found an outstanding talent and collaborator.


Oscar Loya

Oscar’s career is a typical example of the American Dream. The youngest of five children, Oscar was raised in a single parent household on the wrong side of town. Hismother struggled to make ends meet and make sure her children didn’t fall to the product of growing up in a Southern California barrio.

Oscar used his artistic passion for the arts as his key to escape such meager beginnings. After successful career stints as a talented fashion designer, and hair/makeup artist, he finally found his niche by heeding the advice of those around him and making the switch from background to foreground.

Determined not to let a lack of formal training hold him back, at age 24 he left everything behind and moved to New York to finally realise his dream of performing. Being new on the scene was not an issue for Oscar. Only one month after having lived in the Big Apple he was stopped by a famous Broadway producer/choreographer on the street and was asked three questions, “Can you sing? Can you act? Can you dance?” The answer was a resounding “Hell Yeah!”.

Oscar honed his singing, dancing, and acting skills on internationally renowned stages in cities including Bologna, Rotterdam, Vienna, Seoul, Beijing, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Berlin,Köln, and Munich. Oscar’s International experience combined with his skills and remarkable energy, form the basis of continuing his transition from musical star to world class pop star.

With the track Miss Kiss Kiss Bang it has become possible to successfully combine Alex’s superb abilities as producer, composer, and author with Oscar’s extraordinary talent as a performer.

Biography

Soraya Arnelas was born in Valencia de Alcántara, in the Spanish region of Extremadura, on 13 September 1982. Her career as an artist started in 2005, after she had become the most popular finalist of the TV programme “Operación Triunfo.” Since then, Soraya’s record trajectory has been meteoric, with four albums made with the record company Vale Music/Universal Music Spain.

Her debut came with Kike Santander’s production for her first album, Corazón de fuego - a mix of Latin themes with other genres such as ballads and pop dance,which achieved Platinum Disc status in Spain in 2006. In 2007 the second album Ochenta’s was released and contained versions of great hits from the 1980’s. Soraya was awarded a new Platinum Disc for this album.

After this success, one year later, she released Dolce Vita, with new themes of the best dance music. And last year, 2008, she went once again into the recording studio to bring to life unpublished themes on her fourth album, “Sin Miedo,” which consolidated Soraya’s own style.

Soraya was an air stewardess. She speaks English, French and Portuguese, and also outside of her music career collaborates with humanitarian organisations in aid of children.

The Spanish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest is entitled La noche es para mí (The night is for me). It has the quality of being a song specially written to please a wide range of European tastes. On the one hand, it is connected to western pop sounds, with a musical dance base which is always a point of reference in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Soraya’s song also includes a mixture of ethnic sounds. There is a great deal of mixed music, particularly Latin sounds, thanks to the strains of the Spanish guitar, it is also reminiscent of eastern music and sounds typical of Scandinavian and Eastern European countries.

Another important element are the lyrics of the song, which combine on a 50-50 basis the strong characteristics of Spanish with the chorus sung in English, thus giving the song a clear international character.

Biography

There are few singers able to transcend beyond the TV show that made their name. But for Jade Ewen the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest will be the springboard for her success. Regardless of whether she wins in Moscow this May, Jade’s incredible talent ensures her a fantastic future in the music industry.

As Ewen, 21, so effortlessly proved during the four weeks of the selection process in the United Kingdom, Eurovision: Your Country Needs You, she is one of the finest vocalists the United Kingdom has produced in years. With the technical prowess of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey , the classical timelessness of Diana Ross and the eternal cool of Donna Summer, Jade’s forthcoming solo album will deliver classic pop ballads with edgy electro R&B.

Combining an outstanding vocal performance with cutting-edge choreography and melody-driven singles, Jade will embody the current mood in music, credible cool with a mainstream twist. Smart, stylish and extraordinarily gifted, the determined Ewen has the talent, the tenacity and the team behind her to become one of 2009’s most successful singers.

Born and raised in Plaistow, East London to a Jamaican mother and British/ Sicilian father, Jade had a challenging childhood. Her dad is blind and her mum suffers from Myasthenia Gravis, leaving her partially bind and deaf. Yet being the primary carer to her parents and two younger siblings has given Jade a pragmatic, ambitious outlook on life. Since a 3 year-old singing in her grandma’s garden, Jade has systematically set her sights on turning her musical dreams into reality. With both parents unable to work and existing on disability benefits, money was far from flowing in the Ewen household.

Approached by a drama school who recognised her potential, Jade practiced and rehearsed relentlessly in order to win one of the precious few scholarships on offer. As a teenage attendee of Sylvia Young Theatre School, she appeared in The Bill, Casualty and Mr. Harvey Lights A Candle, before perfecting her onstage skills in The Lion King. A gifted singer and dancer, Jade had a brief spell in the girl group Trinity Stone, before going solo. Despite being unsigned at the time, acclaimed producer Kwame (Missy/ Mary J. Blige), was so impressed with the music he heard on Jade's MySpace, he invited her to record with him in New York.

A few months later, and Jade was approached about the Eurovision Song Contest. Initially unsure of what to expect, all doubts were cast aside when she learnt that Andrew Lloyd Webber and Diane Warren were involved. Her dazzling performance of Warren and Lloyd Webber’s It’s My Time in the final week saw Jade storm the voting polls to be crowned as Great Britain’s representative in Moscow this May.

While the Eurovision Song Contest is her immediate focus, there's a solo career to also consider. Performing It’s My Time in Moscow alongside Lloyd Webber is just the first note in Jade’s musical lifeline. “I see Eurovision as the beginning of the rest of my professional life,” decides Jade. “You’re seeing the start of a 20, 30 year career.”

As the song goes, now is Jade’s Time and she’s not letting go of it. Today Eurovision. Tomorrow, the rest of the world…

Song title: Mamo
Song writer(s): Konstantin Meladzé, Diana Golde
Song composer(s): Konstantin Meladzé ...




LYRICS

Вышел из тени вновь, мой враг - моя любовь
Неизбежна моя доля, сколько сердце ни готовь.
Но, прежде чем уйти, колечком золотым
Обручил меня с собою и от чар не защитил
И на волю мою душу не пустил

Мамо, а ти ж мені казала як не жадай
Мамо, а я ж тоді не знала де ж та біда
Мамо, а ти ж мені казала час як вода
Мамо, мамо, мам, любов - біда

Брошу мечту свою и об пол разобью
Как сломал ты мою долю и оставил на краю
Я дождем девичьи слезы разолью

Мама, а ты же мне сказала: не ожидай
Мама, а я ж тогда не знала где ж та беда
Мама, а ты же мне сказала время вода
Мама, мама, мама, любовь - беда...

---------------------------

English Translation

Mum

Out of the shadows once again, my enemy, my love
Destiny can’t be avoided, no matter how much you’re prepared
But before you left, with golden ring
you proposed to me and didn’t save me from sorcery
and didn’t let my soul be free

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

I will throw away my dream and smash it on the floor
How you’ve broken my destiny and set it aside
I will pour girl’s tears like rain

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

μετάφραση στα ελληνικά

Mαμά
Πέρα από τις σκιές, ακόμη μια φορά, ο εχθρός μου, η αγάπη μου,
αναπόφευγκτη είναι η μοίρα μου, σεν έχει σημασία πόσο προετοιμάστηκες.
Μα πριν φύγεις, με χρυσό δαχυλίδι
με αρραβωνιάστηκες, και δε με γλίτωσες από την κατάρα,
και δεν άφησες ελέυθερη τη ψυχή μου

Mαμά,
και μου έλεγες να μην επιθυμώ.
Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

Θα πετάξω μακρυά το όνειρό μου και θα το συντρίψω στο πάτωμα,
έτσι όπως διέλυσες τη μοίρα μου και την άφησες στην άκρη,
θα χύσω τα δάκρυα ενός μικρού κορίτσιου σα βροχή

Mαμά,
και μου έλεγες να μην επιθυμώ.
Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

(Mαμά,
και μου έλεγες να μην επιθυμώ.
Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.)
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

Μαμά,
και τότε δεν γνώριζα ποιό ήταν το πρόβλημα.
Μαμά,
και μου έλεγες πως ο χρόνος κυλάει σα νερό.
Μαμά, μαμά, μαμά,
η αγάπη είναι βάσανο.

Singing is the most important thing in her life, but she also has some other hobbies. These include chess, horse riding and fashion, and particularly likes black outfits.

In July 2006 Anastasia successfully passed all national selections to the Star Factory show directed by the Meladze brothers, and in December 2008 became the winner of the project. After Konstantin Meladze had presented the song Bezotvetno to her she sang it with the famous Russian artist Valeriy Meladze.

At the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow, Anastasia will carry the Russian hopes of a second successive victory performing the song Mamo, which is written in Russian and Ukranian by Konstantin Meladze, her producer and music father.

LYRICS

S’il fallait le faire,
J’arrêterais la terre,
J’éteindrais la lumière
Que tu restes endormi.
S’il fallait pour te plaire
Lever des vents contraires,
Dans un désert sans vie
Je trouverais la mer…
Et s’il fallait le faire,
J’arrêterais la pluie,
Elle fera demi-tour
Le reste de nos vies.
S’il fallait pour te plaire
T’écouter chaque nuit
Quand tu parles d’amour,
J’en parlerais aussi…

Que tu regardes encore
Dans le fond de mes yeux,
Que tu y vois encore
Le plus grand des grands feux.
Et que ta main se colle
Sur ma peau, où elle veut.
Un jour si tu t’envoles
Je suivrais, si je peux…

Et s’il fallait le faire,
Je repousserais l’hiver
A grands coups de printemps
Et de longs matins clairs.
S’il fallait pour te plaire
J’arrêterais le temps,
Que tous tes mots d’hier
Restent à moi maintenant.

Que je regarde encore
Dans le bleu de tes yeux,
Que tes deux mains encore
Se perdent dans mes cheveux,
Je ferai tout plus grand,
Et si c’est trop ou peu,
J’aurais tort tout le temps
Si c’est ça que tu veux…
Je veux bien tout donner
Si seul’ment tu y crois,
Mon cœur veut bien saigner
Si seul’ment tu le vois,
Jusqu’à n’être plus rien
Que l’ombre de tes nuits,
Jusqu’à n’être plus rien
Qu’une ombre qui te suit.

Et s’il fallait le faire…
